Nate Fridson

Nate Fridson is a fast rising star out of the rich comedy scene of Detroit. Featuring well-crafted jokes and an inviting, accessible style, Nate’s act has been called, “smart,” “original,” and, “better than it used to be,” by both peers and audiences alike. A caustic writer who, “brings sarcasm to an art form,” Nate shies from no subject – his material grows from deep, probing roots in the autobiographical to reveal a skewed, surreal worldview. Nate has performed at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta, was a semi-finalist at the New York Comedy Contest, and recently traveled to Japan to perform for the US Troops stationed on Okinawa. Stateside, Nate has appeared at many comedy clubs including – but not limited to – Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle, Stand Up New York, Joey’s Comedy Club, The Funny Bone in Baton Rouge, The Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase, and The Comedy Club on State in Madison.

For the first time ever, Randy, Jason and Dan record Sklarbro County out of the Earwolf Studios. Coming to you straight from Dan Van Kirk’s cabin in Wisconsin, the boys are joined by the always hilarious young comedian from New York, Nate Fridson. Nate talks about how his writing process leads him to perform clean, being the only white guy at any pickup game of basketball in Brooklyn, and being stereotyped as an artist. Dan Van Kirk brings us some crazy stories involving; a New Mexico 10 year-old boy suing police after getting tasered at a Career Fair, a Minnesota man’s nightmare with a deer, and a truck running over a sunbathing reality star’s head. Plus, Cory (one of the buddies from the cabin) tells us his story of having to wrestle Brock Lesnar during a summer wrestling tournament.
